Stamp with fun #109–DT card

Hello dear friends, I hope you are enjoying the bank holiday weekend so far.  I know this is an early post from me but I will be posting an extra special cupcake craft challenge post later… you must come back and find out the surprise lol! 

I am here at this ungodly hour to share my DT card for this week’s stamp with fun challenge and this week our theme is ‘ribbon OR lace’.  I had to make a birthday card for my FIL, whose birthday was yesterday, so combined the two!  Now I can assure you that I have added a ribbon but stupidly covered most of it with my buttons lol!  Here is my card:

SWF #109 - ribbon or lace

SWF #109 - ribbon or lace (close up)

I used this fab image from Karen’s doodles called ‘my fix it grandpa’ as my FIL is a keen DIY-er and loves pottering about.  He is a very handy man to know!!  I used very manly colours of blue and brown and kept the embellishments to a minimum.  As I mentioned my barely visible ribbon (which has a star pattern on it) is almost covered with my die cut buttons d’oh! 

The rest of the design team have created beautiful samples once again this week, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out.  We really love to read all the comments you leave for us. 

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
